Jesus or Yeshua?


Should we call Christ by His Greek or Hebrew name? Does it matter? From One For Israel Ministry:

There are some who would argue till they’re blue in the face that it is critical to call him Yeshua and not Jesus, but Yeshua’s coming was also God’s time to take salvation to the gentiles. It was no accident that his name was disseminated in the international lingua-franca of the day: Greek. It was to go far and wide, to every nation on earth. God was now opening up the way to all the peoples of the earth to come to him. If you relate to him by his name Jesus, then don’t let it be a burden to you to change to Yeshua if you don’t feel the need to. He knows his sheep, and his sheep know his voice. His name has gone out to the nations in various versions of the Greek “Yay-soos,” but now, back here in his birth-place, Israel, people are starting to discover Yeshua their Jewish Messiah.

As a Gentile I call Messiah by His real name, Yeshua. Just like I prefer people calling me by my real name. But that’s just me. Read the full article.
